Re: [St] Gas Tank Expansion?

True.  Only brought tank to dealer, however, pretty sure it's mine bc it has carbon  fiber zipper-scratch-protector-thingy (don't know what the real name for it is) on it so it would be pretty coincidental that there was another blue tank with that on it that just happened to be at the dealer at the same time, etc, etc.  Good thought though.  As for expansion... I agree.  I can't believe that it could/would, but I don't have any other/better explanation.  Mysterious.....
